On Saturday, Taylor Swift brought her massive stadium spectacle to New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, surprising 55,000 shrieking fans by inviting Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump onstage for “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” and hovering over the crowd on a platform during “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Backstage after the show, Swift told Rolling Stone she is already looking ahead to her next album, the follow-up to last year’s Red.
“The floodgates just opened the last couple weeks,” she says of the songwriting process. “I’m getting to that point where I’m irritating to be around because I’ll be with you for half the conversation and then the second half of the conversation I’m clearly editing the second verse of whatever I’m writing in my head.”
On Red, Swift experimented with pop collaborations, writing with hitmakers like Max Martin, Shellback and Dan Wilson. And she already has a list of artists she wants to work with on her next LP.
